   1 1/2 tb Unsalted butter
       1    Egg, beaten
   1. For pie crust, sift flour and salt into large bowl.
   Cut in butter and shortening until mixture resembles
   coarse crumbs. Add orange rind. Sprinkle in juice and
   water,. 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing with fork until
   flour is moistened and soft dough forms. Shape into
   ball. Refrigerate, covered, 1 hour.
   2. For crumb topping, mix flour, brown sugar,
   cinnamon, salt and ginger. Work in butter with fingers
   until mixture is crumbly.
   3. For filling, peel core and cut apples into 1/2-inch
   slices. Put slices in large bowl; toss with 1 to 1 1/2
   tablespoons flour. Add sugar, cinnamon, orange rind,
   vanilla extract, nutmeg and salt. Stir in honey; let
   stand 1 hour.
   4. Heat oven to 450 degrees. Roll half of dough into a
   circle; fit in metal, 9-inch pie pan. Trim edge. Drain
   liquid from apples, reserve. Set 1/4 cup of the crumb
   topping aside. Layer apples with remaining crumbs in
   dough-lined pan. Use crumbs like mortar to build fruit
   up. Dot apples with 1 1/2 tablespoons butter. Sprinkle
   with 5 tablespoons reserved apple liquid.
   5. Roll out remaining dough; cut with knife or fluted
   pastry wheel into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Weave strips
   into lattice over fruit. Seal strips at edge of pan,
   moistening with apple liquid. Flute edge. Sprinkle
   reserved crumbs in holes of lattice. Brush only crust
   edge and strips with beaten egg.
   6. Bake on foil-lined baking sheet at 450 degrees, 5
   minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees; bake
   until apples are tender, 50 to 55 more minutes (or
   only 40 minutes if you like crunchier apples). Cool on
   wire rack to room temperature.
   NOTE: Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream
   flavored with vanilla sugar and orange-flavored
